  • I want to move in with my other parent and I don't know how to go about it.

    Hello, I'm writing this because I want to move in with my father, which stems from alot of things, at home theres no rules or anything along those lines to discipline me in the slightest, might sound ideal but it really isnt, I'm falling off academically and have anxiety when I even think about school, my mother is very unreasonable and I'm terrified to bring this up with her, she's had issues with drugs in the past and the only other thing(s) really stopping me is leaving my sister and maybe 1 or 2 people at my high school, I'm alot happier at my fathers who has joint custody and I feel safer, its also alot more strict here which I agree with and wish for, I want to do better in school personally but in that atmosphere I just can't, please help. (I'm 14, I guess I should've stated that earlier)

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you would like to move in with your father. You could talk to your father and ask him if he could talk to your mother about the possibility of you living with him. Your father could contact legal resources in order to obtain full custody over you. Child Help (1-800-422-4453) is a great resource to get more information on how to transfer custody. If you would like assistance talking to your mother, here at NRS we offer conference calls between youth and their parents. Please feel free to contact us directly via our 24 hour crisis hotline (1-800-786-2929),email, or live chat, if you have any other questions or concerns.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
